UR Modlin Center spring 2022

The University of Richmond’s Modlin Arts Center has announced a spring-semester classical concert lineup featuring the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, joined by saxophonist Branford Marsalis; the trio of pianist Wu Han, violinist Philip Setzer and cellist David Finckel; the piano duo of Garrick Ohlsson and Kirill Gerstein; and double-bassist Edgar Meyer and The Scottish Ensemble.

UR faculty artists and student ensembles also will perform in free programs. Ticket registration in advance is required for those concerts.

The center’s Covid-19 safety protocol requires indoor masking regardless of vaccination status – masks will be provided on request at the box office – and physical distancing of six feet or more. Tickets are general admission, and seating in Camp Concert Hall is limited to 400 patrons. Program books will be available in digital versions.

Tickets are now available, and registration for free concerts may be made, by calling the Modlin Center box office at (804) 289-8980 or visiting the center’s website: http://modlin.richmond.edu
